Have you heard of this indie pattern company? They are located in London and offer PDF patterns (available in their Etsy store, linked above), much like Sis Boom's fairly new line of PDF patterns. So, you have to download and print at home, then tape the sheets together.
I am loving their sleek, modern design aesthetic (I know. Me. Modern?) These are all beautiful...
The size range seems to be from Bust 33" to 40-1/2", so not exactly a huge range, a big downside for me, and the reason I haven't purchased anything yet. I typically don't bother purchasing modern patterns that I have to do a lot of grading on.
But, if you fall in their size range and don't mind printing and taping the sheets together (also not my favorite, but I sacrifice for Jennifer Paganelli's Sis Boom line!) then I think these look like they're worth a look at least!
The Etsy shop prices are in the $7 to $8 range, so very reasonable compared to other indie patterns. As much as I love Colette Patterns, can I express I've always been a little disappointed in their price structure? The new Iris Shorts Pattern is $16! (In comparison, the Beignet skirt pattern, more complicated, is the same price). And the digital Iris PDF version is still $12. For shorts!
And I've never purchased the Lady Grey jacket pattern because it's $20. That's a lot of moolah for a very distinctive pattern that you likely won't ever re-create. If I spend a good chunk on a pattern, I want to at least fool myself into thinking I will reuse the pattern multiple times, decreasing my ultimate "cost per wear", and justifying the initial pattern cost.
On the other hand, the Colette pattern booklets are like little works of art. It's like buying a sewing "book" each time you get a pattern. I'm positive the publishing/printing costs justify the end cost of the pattern. It's that pretty.
I do love Colette patterns and I'll probably buy a couple of the new ones. Hey, I've got most of them now and I do appreciate the extended sizing. Alot. But that's a post for another day!
